There are 7 categories of building stone,
Chopped StoneFieldstoneTumbled StoneRubbleDimensional StoneQuarried Stone & Blends
Each of these categories may be laid with 2 methods.

A wet lay or mortar joint is using wet mortar to fill the joints. The mortar is raked just below the face of the stone.
Another method of a mortar joint may be called a Slush and Brush, where the mortar is all the way to the face of the stone and brush smooth. This is a much wider mortar joint
The next method would be a dry lay or Drystack style.
There is a small amount of mortar between the stones but it’s mostly behind the stones.
